Astronaut Dale A. Gardner, getting his turn in the Manned Maneuvering Unit, prepares to dock with the spinning WESTAR VI satellite during the STS-51A mission. Gardner used a large tool called the Apogee Kick Motor Capture Device to enter the nozzle of a spent WESTAR VI engine and stabilize the communications spacecraft sufficiently to capture it for return to Earth in the cargo bay of the space shuttle Discovery.

STS-63 astronauts Bernard A. Harris Jr., payload commander, right, and C. Michael Foale, mission specialist, left, are ready to exit Discovery's airlock for a spacewalk. The pair would test new insulation to protect astronauts from the cold during extravehicular activity, but Mission Control cut the spacewalk short after the men reported feeling very cold in their suits. Harris became the first African American to walk in space.
